The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state, is not talented enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape — and to survive. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nineveh | 2/18/2014

    " Amazing story. If you really pay attention it is actually quite philosophical and I think it is an amazing read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Gallagher | 2/4/2014

    " A fun "Adults are out to get us" scifi read, with a well-visualized world, but clanking big plausibility issues with how we supposedly got there from here kept me from giving it a higher mark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fatima | 1/28/2014

    " This was a really good book since I've read in awhile. I've never read any Neal Shutersman books until i read this one. I finished the book in like two days and all i had to say was..Oh My God. I was so surprised in the ending. I can't wait to read the second book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Ann | 1/26/2014

    " I found this book good in a creepy way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SCPL Teens | 1/21/2014

    " This book touches on genetics, abortion, runaways, a dystopian future, kids vs. adults and more. It is darker than usual with exciting plot development. A group of runaways is trying to fight laws that allow teens to be unwound -- taken apart for their physical parts - without their consent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/20/2014

    " This was really good, and seriously thought provoking. It brings up a lot of questions about abortion, life, souls, and conception. It was really interesting as a general concept. I would recommend it highly to anyone who asked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 1/17/2014

    " This book was exiting, and disturbing. It was along the same premise of Baby Never Let Me Go, but much more action packed. Surprises all the way through too. Fun read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber Cheek | 1/11/2014

    " Controversial, wish it wasn't banned in the classroom! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fplyouth Staff | 1/10/2014

    " DW: Very good. It's a frightening premise on the whole, so I think best for at least ages 12 and up. A potential rape scene is implied, and some kissing also. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aramis | 1/5/2014

    " I was very impressed by the ideas and the characterization in this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia Eyerly | 11/23/2013

    " I LOVED this book. I am so excited to read the sequels. I had no idea there was another book until I just saw it on here!!! I am very into adventure so Unwind was just for me. I would definitely read it again. The characters in it were so interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liza | 10/25/2013

    " Awesome book!! cant wait to read the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E | 6/12/2013

    " Definitely high on the creepy scale. Not a book for kids under, wow, I'm just not sure it's for kids at all. I don't think I'll read the sequels, I've spent too long in that world already. I can't believe I missed the book group discussion on this one. I bet it was great! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Step | 5/2/2013

    " Really poorly written. Don't bother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanja | 9/28/2012

    " This would be an interesting book club discussion. What is life? That is the big question of the book. As a parent how much say do we have in a child's right to exist? Interesting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexis | 5/16/2012

    " Couldn't put it down! Read it in a day! Once you get past the creepy factor, it brings up many thought provoking questions about society and politics, wish I had a book club to discuss it with! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monet khanyahl | 5/15/2012

    " I was super scared about this book. I had to stop reading for a minute just to stop breathing loudly. So I have to say that I really don't read these books, but this one was like wow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxanne | 2/18/2012

    " I really liked the ending! There was definitely closure, and even though it was disturbing at parts, it wasn't too nightmare-inducing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 12/20/2011

    " This was such a good book. I thought the storyline was very unique. Reading the book was quick and straightforward. An absolute page-turner. I really enjoyed it and I am definitely going to continue reading the other books preceding this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molli927 | 11/16/2011

    " disturbing but thought provoking, didnt get very attached to the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Challene | 11/1/2011

    " Overall I liked the book and thought that the story line was very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah Stohr | 7/23/2011

    " In a world where children can be recycled, some teens look for a voice of their own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drucilla | 5/20/2011

    " It kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through. You can't ask for more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 5/20/2011

    " Superb. I read this a while ago so I sort of forget it, but, this book is well worth your time. Absolutely, superb. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 seekitlikesilver | 5/20/2011

    " I loved the story. The plot was great, but the writing...ugh. I (personally) thought it was written very poorly. Even the characters weren't written well. Shame. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 5/19/2011

    " This was so good. It had a really freaky part that stayed in my head for a whole day. I enjoyed it a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deena | 5/18/2011

    " It was Ok..but nothing special. Wasn't a page turner for me but kept my attention long enough to finish. I guess some of the events were supposed to lead up to the final chapters...but the ending seemed abrupt and unnatural to me. "
